Author Topic: Multiple calibration groups needed for multiple cameras of the same model?  (Read 159 times)

Hello and happy new year!

I do forest surveys by drone, and at some of my sites I will collect imagery from two drones of the same model (including the same model camera). With two cameras of the same model, is it necessary to use separate calibrations (and thus separate calibration groups)? The photo XMP data from both cameras will specify the same model number, so I believe that Metashape will put them in the same calibration group. I wonder if this is OK, or if I have to separate them into separate groups.

Thank you!

Hallo djyoung,

each manufactured camera differ even from the same brand so I would separate them in different camera groups.

Best regards
